GPS devices have been designed to easily get drivers to their destination but Garmin has come up with a model that can help you off the beaten track as well.

The Garmin Montana has a rugged design that can keep up with any adventurer who’s travelling in a car, on a motorcycle or on foot.

Featuring a four-inch touchscreen and 5-megapixel camera, the Garmin Montana comes preloaded with Australian and New Zealand maps.  

The device is fully waterproof and dustproof so users don’t have to hold back.

Also on board is a barometric altimeter and it is also capable of elevation and route profiling.

And the good news is Garmin Montana users are not restricted to dry land with support for marine charts, BirdsEye satellite imagery and custom maps.

The included 5-megapixel camera allows users to automatically geotag their photos so adventures can be completely documented and the images displayed on a map to show where they were taken.

A microSD card can easily expand the Garmin Montana’s memory up to 32GB so there’s plenty of room to store images and extra maps.

And there’s no risk of being caught short with the battery. The device has an included rechargeable 16-hour lithium battery or 22 hours from three AA batteries.

“Montana was designed with the ‘get dirty, go hard then go home’ crowd in mind, who are always after an adventure,” said Ian Edwards, National Sales Manager Garmin Australasia.

“From navigating waterways in your boat and traversing national parks in your four wheel drive, to hiking and even receiving spoken turn-by-turn directions on the way to the football field, Montana will take you anywhere and everywhere.”

Pricing and availability of the Garmin Montana will be announced later this week.
